Gridiron Hounds Close Spectacular Grand Opening with 37-16 win Over Mustangs

Shortly before Saturday's Grand Opening, the ribbon on Al Whitehead Field at Greyhound Stadium was cut, many generous donors were recognized, and the National Anthem was finished with a flyover from Cannon Air Force base.

Falcons Do It All in 49-34 Win over Arizona Christian

UT Permian Basin seemed to find every possible way to score Saturday night in a come-from-behind, seven touchdown night as the Falcons downed Arizona Christian 49-34 at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.

The visiting Firestorm seemed to take control of the momentum early in the contest when it held the Falcons scoreless as the team's first drive stalled out at the one-yard line. Arizona Christian then went the length of the field, traversing all 99 yards over 16 plays for a 6-0 lead.

UTPB wouldn't get on the scoreboard until under three minutes remained in the second quarter, but took the lead when Cris Hoad stripped the ball, picked it up and ran it home for a 32-yard defensive touchdown for a 7-6 lead...Complete Release
